I'll be there for you.......



There's a belief  that you dont choose your family , but you can choose your friends.....and to a certain degree I agree;

I have work colleagues ,aquaintances and fair weather friends  but actual friends....the sort that know you inside and out, through good and bad, thick and thin - nope, nadda, ain't never happened!
Mr B had friends galore; at least he/I /we were under the impression he had ....then Cancer reared its head ........you'd be surprised who visited, made the effort......
His alcoholic,fellow co-worker drove him to and from all his radiotherapy/chemo sessions- never missed one.......except he completly forgot what time the funeral was ( he was to be a pallbearer )....sometimes I think ...did he?!
Two friends by default- who, incidentally. I didnt like  (they knew him via other people) visited him on a weekly basis despite my obvious loathing ; but they still came ......
I'm probally being ungracious but his  best friend only visited him when the end was near .....Mr B always had an explanation
Another friend rushed to his side when he had a chest infection then admonished me jokingly that he thought'this was it' when he realised he was ok.......
We once were shopping, Mr B  in a wheelchair, when a work colleague  saw him and tried to rush past him, Mr B being Mr B was friendly,chatty and polite.... the work  colleague couldnt wait to go- even Mr B remarked on it!!!!
I guess what I'm trying to say is two fold.....Mr B was such a big part of my life he will always crop up in this blog ( I make no apologies!) plus you just never know where true friendship, understanding, love will come from .......and I love it!!!!!
I love all the people who go that extra mile for someone  - whoever, whatever they are.....dont bloody underestimate people......they are amazing !!!!
